Need a dessert but you don’t want to feel guilty about it afterwards? THIS is for you. For those of you who didn’t see my post on Facebook, I promised a recipe for this pudding and here it is!
I had the pleasure of eating not one, but TWO servings (not in the same day!). Full of calcium, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids, it is delicious. There is a subtle sweetness to it. I didn’t add any extra agave or sugar to the recipe because I felt it didn’t need any. Hope you like unsweetened coconut meat. It’s not sweet like the “baking” coconut that I like to call the stuff in a bag down the baking aisle. It brings more texture to the pudding. I forgot the garnish, but I bet it would have been really good.
Big D: “It was good.”
M: “Not sweet enough.”
There you have it folks. My mini consensus.
